Why Hire a Project Manager?
In general, audio visual systems of today are quite complex compared to those found even 10yrs ago. The convergence of the audio visual (AV) and information technology (IT) worlds is one contributing factor. Gone are the days when you could hire an electrician to pull cable, connect up a few pieces of equipment, and expect the system to work properly. In addition to the basic increase in systems complexity, Compass AudioVisual, LLC specializes in advanced audio visual systems. Typically, these systems involve extensive or complex connectivity topologies, specialized equipment connected in novel or new ways, and all controlled via a touch-panel or PC control system. It is more important now than ever to hire a competent professional to manage the intricacies of an advanced audio visual project.
Will Any Project Manager Do?
The answer is an emphatic “no.” With the complexity of today’s audio visual systems, it is very important to hire a project manager who is also an accomplished audio visual specialist (see Why Compass). David Logsted (Principal) has been independently certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP) by the Project Management Institute (PMI). In addition to being an adept project manager, he is also certified by InfoComm International as an audio visual Certified Technology Specialist. With 25 years experience in the audio visual industry, David has a deep audio visual knowledge. This combination makes him especially well suited to managing the most advanced audio visual projects. He will work with you to learn your desires and requirements for the project, then take the necessary steps to bring your project to reality, always representing you and your needs throughout the process.
